Review by one of our student..

My whole experience with YTT in Mahamukti Yoga Center in Goa was incredible. We practiced yoga everyday twice a day morning and afternoon, and had lessons on art of teaching, anatomy, phylosophy as well as cleansing, detox, Q&A, practice works, exams and many others. So basically except one day off which was Monday every day we were quite engaged both physically and mentally. All of the food in India at least the one in my yoga teacher training was amazing. 



Every morning we had breakfast in the beach resort we were staying and lunch in a different place as well as dinner also in another restaurant and it was nice actually to walk to these places while chatting with the classmates and exploring and learning more on the culture of the country and the people. All the food was vegetarian with choices, everyday they served different meals with nutrition and taste.



Practicing yoga in Goa in Mandrem beach hearing the sound of ocean waves, enjoying the gorgeous view and having the amazing mentors and the instructors really touched the root of my soul and mind and made my whole journey and training make so complete and unique. 



The one lesson I took away from this journey is just being humble, just completely humbling yourself, I thought that I know about myself, I knew so many things and been to many places etc but when I got to this country and experience something as a newbie it definitely humbled me to my knees in so many ways and maybe realize that there’s so much more to life that I already know that there’s so much more that I can learn now and just keep an open mind to everything and allow to experiences to come into your life rather than take them with your own judgment and your own preconcieved knowledge about them.



Last but not least, my humble and sincere appreciation to my yoga teachers and practitioners. I would very much love to recommend this YTT to anyone interested in a Yoga Teacher Training or Yoga Retreat in India.
